Many kids wet the bed until they are 5 or even older. 90% of children stop doing it after completing 3-5 year age, even if this continue even after 5-7 years of age then you need to consult a physician to check whether child requires a treatment or not.
A child’s bladder might be too small. Or the amount of urine produced overnight can be more than the bladder can hold. Some children sleep too deeply or take longer to learn bladder control. Stress can also be a factor. Children should not be punished for wetting the bed. They don’t do it on purpose, and most outgrow it.
